Who Uses My WiFi? - App Review

The App names says it all... well nearly, there is another arrow to this particular bow.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The main screen contains two main items:

Network Monitor
Press this and bring up your current connection point, as well as past connection points. tap on this and get a list of connected devices, together with their IP and MAC addresses (previously connected devices are in pale text).
It's a good idea to check the IP address of your used devices (Settings/Wi-Fi on iOS devices) and then give them a friendly name. You will now be left (or hopefully not) with connections that you haven't authorised.

Key Generator
This is the 'other' part of the App, which is an excellent way to generate keys; you'll not have to think about avoiding obvious passwords.

The App costs £1.

If you are concerned about who is, or might be, piggybacking onto your wi-fi, this is a simple way of checking it out.

You need to hit refresh to check on current connections and are then informed of how long ago the last update took place.

This App serves to enhance your security, rather than the other way round, as is so often the case.
